Information: Fake or Trustworthy?

ID : 749   
« back to classes page
In a world in which online and traditional media vie for citizens’ eyeballs and ears, knowing what information to trust is a growing challenge, especially in this election year.  Journalists and librarians have developed tools, tests, and techniques for students and audiences to apply critical thinking principles to judge the reliability and authenticity of information in the public sphere.  We will discuss these topics which provide ways to help us make informed judgments about information from news media, news makers, opinion makers, pundits, and even one’s neighbors.
